Hunnypot Live #341


Hunnypot is still in the race.  Hot Tub Johnnie began the night with his platform of groovy tunes.  Mr. Bonzai regaled us with his tales of "being there" when rock n roll was dangerous, how he met John Lennon and a classic set of music.  Olivia Harris torched the live sets off, Kalen Lister belted out her epic compositions, Iconique dazzled with their electro/disco indentity, Phil Gibbs brought the heartache through music and Somos Uno made everyone believe Tijuana is really a place in Jamaica with their international reggae sounds.  5-2-2016
